Whatever Works

by Husband on August 8, 2009

Just saw the new Woody Allen film “Whatever Works.” It wasn’t his best film, but it was pretty good. Lots of laughs, and it deconstructs relationship, as usual.
Allen wrote the script in the 70s for Zero Mostel, but the legend died too soon. Woody dusted it off again recently, recast Larry David in his first feature lead, and it works. I recommend it.

I mention it here because there is all sorts of relationship convention bending, including (SPOILER ALERT) a poly relationship, which is pretty amusing. “Whichever way she turns in bed, there’s a penis waiting for her.” (Or something to that effect.)

Rent it on DVD, if it’s not still playing in your town.
